One of our favorite things that we do at Carter & Higgins Orthodontics is our patient reward program. Over the years, our patients have earned thousands of wooden token points that they have redeemed for gift cards, swag, or exchanged for a donation to one of our local charities. Well, we’ve got some exciting news! We are giving our rewards program an upgrade!
The New Points Punch Card
We are transitioning from wooden tokens to point punch cards! The rewards system works just like it did before, with great prizes and a group of incredible local nonprofits to support. Now, when our patients perform certain tasks to reach their treatment goals, they will get a hole punched in their points card. If you show up to your appointment on time, that’s a punch! If you’ve consistently flossed since your last appointment, that’s another punch! It is as easy as that. After so many points are accumulated, patients can cash out their points for gift cards, a Jerry mask or t-shirt, or they can trade in their points for a donation to one of the four local charities we support.
Lessons In Giving Back
We think it is important to model to our kids the value of giving back to your local community. That is why we give our patients the option to donate their hard-earned points toward a donation to a local organization. We are especially proud to support four local nonprofits whose missions are near and dear to our hearts. These organizations include: The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Little Lighthouse, NEHI Research Foundation, and the Pierce Phillips Charity.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.
The Little Lighthouse
The Little Light House is a Christian developmental center for children with special needs. They provide tuition-free educational and therapeutic services to their students. The school depends on donations and hundreds of volunteers to keep its doors open.
The NEHI Research Foundation
The NEHI Research Foundation works to improve the diagnostic process, find treatments, and ultimately cure all forms of Children’s Interstitial Lung Disease through the support of research.
Pierce Phillips Charity
Pierce Phillips Charity is devoted to the eradication of pediatric cancer through funding research and to improving the lives of families whose children are battling this disease.
We are excited about this new makeover for our beloved rewards program and look forward to our continued support of these incredible organizations! If you’re thinking, “Wait, what do I do with all my old wooden tokens?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Bring all your tokens to your next appointment and we can cash them out! We are warming up our hole puncher now, and until then, happy flossing!
